Shakin’ Stevens announces an 18 date tour for March 2019. The platinum-selling entertainer and performer join his band to perform fan favourites. As well as surprises and, of course, his much-loved hits including ‘Oh Julie’, ‘Hot Dog’ and ‘This Ole House’.
“I’ve been going through my catalogue of songs in preparation for the tour, and re-introducing myself to the many and varied styles of music I’ve recorded during my solo career. From country rock to Cajun, classic rock to Latin, and blues to Americana I’ve the pleasure of re-discovering the “jewels” from my repertoire that are so well-liked. Of course there’ll be hits and some songs that I haven’t performed live on stage for a decade or two….so some surprises! I’ve also included well-known songs from other artists whose work I admire, together with album tracks and newer songs, bringing it right up to date! I can’t wait to get back on the road and to have a great time with the audiences.”
Shakin’ Stevens Tour Dates
Tickets went on sale in September but some are still available. You can also purchase from the venue box offices via www.BookingsDirect.com and select authorised agents.
With 33 hit singles, four UK No 1s, and chart-toppers around the world, Shakin’ Stevens is the UK’s biggest-selling artist of a decade. He has recently returned to the UK charts with the release of his acclaimed 2016 album ‘Echoes Of Our Times’. Inspired by Shaky’s research into his family history and uncovered tales of wartime heroics, salvationists and strife in the copper mines of Cornwall, and with influences from blues, folk and Americana as well as his trademark rocking style, it was one of the most surprising and acclaimed albums of the year.
